Tell Us Your Story About The Deduction On Health Insurance Costs

Feb 09, 2011

Posted by Kristin Oberlander - The NASE realizes that the most important aspect of advocating on behalf of the self-employed is listening to true-life experiences. This week, we are particularly interested in how the topic above on the 2010 deduction for health insurance costs will affect your business. Simply multiply what you currently pay for health insurance by 15.3% (.153) and that's how much money you'll save in taxes this year. What will you do with that money?

Email the Washington Watch Editor, Kristin, at to tell us. With your permission, we'll share your story with the media to show them just how important it is to get this provision extended beyond the 2010 tax year.
